SHARE THESE DIY FURNACE REPAIR FIXES

Furnaces and heat pumps don’t have to be complicated - or scary.

If you follow these 3 easy steps you could solve your problem - and alleviate your fears -BEFORE calling one of our techs.

STEP 1: IN CASE POWER HAS STOPPED FLOWING TO YOUR FURNACE

Check your circuit breaker panel and reset if needed. Also confirm that your furnace switch is turned on.

STEP 2: YOUR THERMOSTAT MAY BE THE PROBLEM

Make sure your thermostat is set to Heat, not Cool, then turn it to 90 degrees. If the heat doesn’t come on, try changing your thermostat battery.

STEP 3: YOUR AIR FILTER COULD BE DIRTY

If your filter is covered with dust and debris, replace it with a clean one.

Tip: by using a permanent marker to mark airflow direction on the outside of your furnace when removing the old filter, you’ll always remember the right way to install your new one.


If the first 3 steps didn’t help, you may have a more serious problem.

Call to schedule a visit by one of our more than 100 experienced service technicians. They can check things out, and have you feeling safe and warm again in no time.

While you’re waiting for a tech:

  • Limit opening outside doors - to keep heat in
  • Stay warm with extra layers and blankets, and cuddle with your pets
  • Ask us about the availability of complimentary space heaters

Tip: You can save money on repair fees by scheduling appointments during regular business hours.


Some furnace or heat pump warning signs should never be ignored.

If you have - or suspect you have - any of the following, call Triangle immediately.

  • Repeated pilot light malfunctioning - this could signal clogged hardware
  • Strong gas or fuel smell - possible indication of a dangerous leak
  • Overly-frosted or iced external heat pump - could indicate a frozen system
